Annual Twin Cities reception a success

On Sunday, Oct. 27, the Admission Office hosted a reception at the Minneapolis Airport Marriott Hotel in Bloomington. The event drew 25 students plus many parents. This event could not have happened without the generous support of many faculty, staff, coaches, current students, alumni and SMU parents who shared their Sunday to assist in bringing a taste of Saint Mary’s to our prospective students. Thanks go to the following individuals for their efforts:

Winona campus faculty, staff and coaches:  Esther Peralez, Steven McGlaun, Michelle Cullen, Alece Newbury, Pat Jackobsen, Bill Moore, Greg Moore, Rob McColl, Jeanne Minnerath, Tom Marpe, Larry Price, Brett Bodsgard, Dean Beckman, Carolyn Ayers, Melissa Luedtke, Sister Genevieve Robinson, Paul Weiner, Janet Heukeshoven, Alyson Kriz, Jayne Wobig and Tammy Vondrasek

Current undergraduate students: Christine Meeds, Moises Hernandez, Saul Hernandez and Megan Collins

Undergraduate alumni: Mike Berg, Erik Qvale, Chris Engesser, Danny Spiess, Mark Zuzek and Alex Conover

Parents of current SMU students: Mark and Janet Zuzek

The positive comments heard from the students and their parents after these events remind us that this is a valuable way to connect with future Saint Mary’s students.
